|KNIPEX CutiX Universal Knife: Snap-off knife with unique blade stabilisation and magnesium housing|
Variable, ergonomic, light and robust
The innovative, variably extendible stabilisation bar of the Knipex CutiX Universal Knife 90 10 165 BK is the ideal answer for versatile and comfortable work! With the stabilisation bar extended, even an extended snap-off blade remains rigid, so that pressure can be applied more safely directly to the back of the blade, for example with the thumb. This allows, for instance, particularly comfortable scraping. With the stabilisation bar retracted, however, the blade remains flexible and thus allows cuts to be made in hard-to-reach corners. The separate sliders for the blade and stabilisation bar are flat and do not protrude from the housing. Advantages: The slim snap-off knife measures around 165 millimetres in length and fits comfortably and ergonomically in the hand, without the risk of accidentally operating the slider.
Magnesium housing, particularly durable and light
When it comes to the material used in the housing, Knipex has chosen a magnesium alloy for its robustness and light weight. This solid metal is about one third lighter than aluminium. As a result, the 165 millimetre KNIPEX CutiX Universal Knife only weights approx. 111 grams - making it as light as a plastic knife, but tougher than an aluminium one.
Clever details for optimum handling
Flexible hold thanks to many non-slip grip zones! The CutiX can be held firmly in the palm of your hand or between your fingers like a pen for delicate tasks. The blade holder always holds the snap-off blades securely thanks to the hardened steel pin. The rear end of the handle is securely closed and reliably prevents the blade slider or even the blade from slipping out.
